: alex at city, maryland. independent line. caller: definitely particularly in local races. i look for independents. i am very unhappy with the direction we are going socially and fiscally, to say it is a wasted vote is equivalent of finding the winner and cast the vote in that direction. host: have you voted for them in the past? caller: absolutely. host: why is it? why are you more attracted to an independent voter? caller: because they are socially liberal and fiscally conservative. host: who you point to as the candidate or politician who represents that, independent? caller: michael bloomberg. caller: he is someone you would like to see more -- michael bloombergs running? we corresponded -- caller: we corresponded by e- mail and i'm very impressed with him. host: good morning in baltimore. are you with us? one last time. all right. i am going to put you on hold here and we will come back to you in just a minute. this is also an article this morning from "roll call." outside groups aiding gop cause this cycle. this piece says that whether or not they have the dollars to make an

a look on that a little more. frederick, maryland, luann on the republican line, thank you for calling. caller: thank you for c-span. i just want to say i hope they do not cut those tax cuts. i am so disgusted with the obama administration and the amount of money that my grandchildren right now and their children will have to pay. there is no way we're going to get out of this. we need to keep those tax cuts. i just want to say one other thing before you let me go. i notice that whenever a democrat is on talking that they get to speak longer than any other republican. but i just want to say that what is happening to our country money wise with the war, with everything we see going on around us, we are not going to be in america much longe and i don't understand why people can't wake up and see that this country is going down the tubes because of all the spending. it is not republicans. don't blame the republicans. they are trying to save money not to put our children in debt, and that is exactly what is happening and it is so sad. >> listen to house speaker nancy posi for the rationale

, maryland. independent color. caller: i just wanted to ask what is the reason that we are not in afghanistan in iraq? i hear plenty of reports about what is going on, different people's opinions, but quite honestly, i don't understand -- maybe i am a fool -- why are we there? i think it needs addressing. i also think that our present needs to have some press conferences. i do not -- our president needs to have some press conferences. host: and news stories from "the washington post." in harlem, charlie rangel is still a hero. of course, the house subcommittee is looking at what charlie rangel, among other things, improperly used his congressional seat to solicit money and there are other charges he is facing. also from "usa today," white house uses joe biden as campaigner in chief. they look at stops on the campaign trail that president obama and the vice president have taken. the coveted headliner is really the first lady. let's go to walter loeb, iowa, bob, republican. caller: i am sorry, i forgot your name. but i just wanted to say that you are doing a good job today. these odd calls an o
the state of maryland -- my friend and colleague from the state of maryland has been active in every single issue that we have addressed in this body to deal with jobs and on the economy and it's just indeed a real pleasure for me to yield some time to her this evening because she is always very, very prepared and very knowledgeable and very intellectual formative. at this time i'd -- and very informative. at this time i yield to ms. edwards. ms. edwards: i thank the gentlelady and, madam speaker, i have to tell you, it really troubles me to be here this evening because once again we have to point to action by house democrats to bring jobs to the american people and inaction by our republican colleagues, particularly those who sit in the united states senate, who have failed to deliver on the promise of jobs to the american people. now, when president obama came into office, i think that month, madam speaker, we lost something like 750,000 jobs just that one month. after having hemorrhaged for over a year thousands and thousands of jobs, not creating a single job in this country, sooned the
, maryland, republican line, bill. caller: i know a bit about the problems. i have been in the business 42 years as a scientist. this has been a shift of offals with obama leading the way. i have been a consultant to u.s. domestic oil companies and foreign oil companies. in environmental and safety matters. i will say that american companies run to a higher standard on environmental and higher standard on safety. that is a fact because i have worked for both of them. this whole thing should not have happened in the first place, but there are thousands and thousands of oil rigs operating in the gulf safely and without problems. it is completely inappropriate for an experience and on educated government official to come in and of -- and presumably to have all the answers because they don't. the biggest problem is that there is high regulation but for the most part the regulators don't understand what they are looking at and don't know what they are doing. i have been there, done that, seen that, and i shake my head at out incompetents the government regulators are. that is what i have to say

what they are. what you are hearing, by the way, it is not dissimilar to what i hear in maryland and what regulators are here across the country. bank lending is not where it should be. part of it has to do with the lack of robust demand. you will hear a lot about -- a lot of in a boat -- an adult about how there are not enough borrowers. we also hear stories about credit-worthy borrowers. they have credible cash flows. the bankers did not have to be dependent on the week collateral coming from real- estate. there is cash flow here. these are borrowers that can sustain new loans. why does borrowers are not able to get loans is a challenge. i think we need to do some work on that. significantly, banks lending to small businesses is a critical factor in spurring employment. the notion of getting this right will also have good consequences for employment. >> does anybody else want to jump in on that conversation? >> the federal reserve has just concluded before-on sessions we have had around the country in which we tried to bring together lenders, small-business owners, and others t

is not spread so if you one-- pick one state maryland, you could say most of the cases are in baltimore and montgomery, prince george's county but even in the city so in the district of columbia it is concentrated so there is much more hiv is to the river here than other parts. so the geographic issues are something we think the strategy needs to address. >> can i just say also, piece of this puzzle is that i think, tell the passage of the affordable care act, the dealing with health disparities and the gap in access to good care were dramatic, and some of that have different levels of eligibility for medicaid. that will change. states have different outreach efforts with the doubling of the community health center footprint that occurred because the recovery act, that will change. with the pipeline for additional medical providers, particularly medical providers coming out of minority communities. i think we have some strategies now in place and some funding now in place that goes directly to some of the disparities, some of which are geographic and some of which are economic that have
: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from maryland rise? >> to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. >> mr. speaker, i rise today in commemoration of the 36th anniversary of the turkish invasion of cyprus. mr. sarbanes: the occupation of this tiny island republic is a symptom that turkey's indifference of intolerance and democratic values. they continue to resettle some 180,000 an tollian turks in the homes and possessions of the 100,000 greeks that was evicted from the occupied territories. the turkish military is eradicating he had lenic and christian heritage with all of the 500 greek orthodox churches there having been looted, desecrated or destroyed. on this the 36th anniversary of the invasion and occupation of cyprus, the united states should demand an immediate withdrawal of the 45,000 turkish soldiers now occupying northern cyprus and should continue to press this issue in every interaction with turkish officials. this should promote a values-based alliance with turkey that will s
thank the senator from marylan maryland. >> thank you particularly for your skilled and patient leadership of this committee through this process. i am proud to vote for confirmation. i am honored to be here on this day when after nearly 30 years on this committee our colleague senator speck tore spoke for the last time on a supreme court nominee. she is a remarkably qualified attorney and public servant. she is a lawyer for the united states and managing appellate litigation across the country. she is the former dean of harvard law school and she is a thoughtful lawyer who always seeks to understand and reconcile. she will bring strong judgment, analysis and a commitment to consensus building to the supreme court. she also understands the proper role of a judge as she stated law is not a robotic enterprise. and everything is clear cut and there is no judgment in the process. the simplistic umpire met fore does not explain how to resolve tension between competing constitutional values or apply new rules to the founders unimaginable factual situations. if it were simple, every de
maryland, donna edwards. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. ms. edwards: i rise in support as a co-sponsor of this amendment and i thank congresswoman lee. this amendment requires that we act on evidence and we know that based on the evidence our afghanistan policy is a failure. numerous strategies and restated mission statements from president bush to prime minister gordon brown to prime minister blair to president obama, we -- restated mission statements continue to fall short. u.s. military reported that 102 coalition forces were killed in june alone along with the people of afghanistan heightening the iraq war. we need to use our resources to bring our troops, our treasure home. i want to be clear. my opposition to the war is opposition to the policy and not to the brave men and women about we do an an injustice if we do not have a debate. i have seen the conditions on the ground just recently and this war will never end quickly, if at all. i urge my colleagues to support this amendment. and whether it was miss crystal or petraeus, it's not about the generals
person over and over. maryland, ray, good morning. caller: if the people should step down from the senate and the congress when they are 70 years old, why is it that the supreme court people stay on their sometimes until they are dead? that is ridiculous. they all should step down because if the senators are not capable of doing their job, which apparently is the case now, they are not doing their job, because of age, the supreme court, they should also be retired at 70. host: nor folk, new york, bob, you are on the air. caller: thank you for the opportunity. they have got to give you the best. so, i think that there should be term limits on these guys. an old dog can learn good new tricks. i think that i would like to see term limits. thank you very much. host: this is from "the new york times" this morning. "former bush justice department official that approve the brutal methods told congress that he never authorize other rough tactics reportedly inflicted on terrorism suspects. in closed-door testimony before the house judiciary committee on may 26, the official said that the cia never
of this year. we could take a look on that a little more. frederick, maryland, luann on the republican line, thank you for calling. caller: thank you for c-span. i just want to say i hope they do not cut those tax cuts. i am so disgusted with the obama administration and the amount of money that my grandchildren right now and their children will have to pay. there is no way we're going to get out of this. we need to keep those tax cuts. i just want to say one other thing before you let me go. i notice that whenever a democrat is on talking that they get to speak longer than any other republican. but i just want to say that what is happening to our country money wise with the war, with everything we see going on around us, we are not going to be in america much longer, and i don't understand why people can't wake up and see that this country is going down the tubes because of all the spending. it is not republicans. don't blame the republicans. they are trying to save money not to put our children in debt, and that is exactly what is happening and it is so sad. >> listen to house speaker nan
: there is a rematch in terms of governments -- governors in maryland, bob ehrlich trying to reclaim his seat from martin o'malley. in california there's a lot of concentration on jerry brown, who served in the 1970's through the 1980's, trying to come back in -- against meg whitman, who last cal spent $81 million of her own money to become governor. guest: that is right. and she will be spending $120 million before it is all over. there have been candidates in the past in california that have spent hugely and lost. michael huffington and darrell i saw come to mind. it is not any guarantee that she will win. democrats think that they have a fairly good shot because she has moved to the right to win her primary and because voters in primary may not think it is time for an outsider. they tried that with governor arnold schwarzenegger. the experience may not be negative for former governor brown. it is not a great landscape for democrats. but there are some bright spots and possibilities. host: we spoke to congressman beryl eisa -- darryl isa, he was asked about the immigration issue and the impact i
, it doesn't. it just what that particular well is comprised of. host: baltimore, maryland. bill, democratic line. caller: good morning a long time listener to "washington journal." good morning, sir. i agree that the moratorium was probably a jam too fast. they need to look a little further. item on the left a little bit but i have to tell you, just about harry reid, i think that was just him running for senate. he is running for his life. basically cap-and-trade was a victim of that. as to employment and your jobs on the rigs -- in the refineries, i have two cousins in texas in houston, if you are talking about job creation on the refinery site, sir, i have to correct you, they have been downsizing for years. if the refinery is hard not in the job creation business -- host: why are they downsizing? caller: automation and just the way business goes. across american industry, we have seen it. people get downsized. i just wanted to mention the truth of what happened. i would also offer that as far as the law goes an epa, you tell me you are in litigation. if the epa is not going to regulate y
communicators ," on mine safety and the cable industry in europe. with the maryland attorney general and cable europe president. that is tonight on c-span2. last year, president obama created a commission providing policy advice on by zero ethical issues. . >> i would like to introduce diane as our designated federal officer. that makes this meeting legal. good morning. i am amy gutmann, chair of the presidenal commission on the study of bioethical issues. our co-chaired jim wagner will introduce the first session. we are now starting the second day of our meeting on synthetic biology. yesterday, we heard from some of the leading experts in synthetic biology. we received a very clear overview of the science. we learned about the likely future applications and benefits. we heard about some of the potential risks and other ethical concerns. let me fantasize that this is the first of three meetings on this topic. rome -- let me emphasize that this is the first three meetings on this topic. we a planned this one to be an overview. we will take a deeper dive in september at our next meeting. it is
say where i'm coming from, i hope you'll appreciate this. governor o'malley brags about maryland being first in the education and he should brag about it. it is something that he should never take for granted. we're tenth. who would have believed a few years ago arkansas would be tenth in those rankings? and what's wha that's done is it's changed both inside and outside our state the image and the view. and the relationship and it's from high-tech, it's from the hewlett packards and the versance of the world and all those jobs to the manufacturing sector where we've created over 25,000 new jobs in the midst of this recession. it is the combination that he was talking about. and increasing what we already have and not forgetting our existing businesses at the same time though that we try to attract new ones. it's all of the microthing that is everyone is talking about. it's what the governor was talking about about keeping your people in your state. but you've got to be able to educate them and provide the good jobs so they don't go to atlanta or baltimore to get a good job. it's all of
. maryland is one of the states that went for it and is now very grateful, and a huge segment of its operation is now 100% federally funded. now that seems to look like on paper that all means all, finally. the community first option is still just an option, and people will wait. it is still an option. it is not the same as being told when somebody needs this, they have to be provided that kind of institution. it is not the same. it is an option. it has incentives. so my clients range in age from 20-something to 80 or more. and i have a grass-roots group. i hope some of them are watching, the sunshine folks, and many of whom are nursing facilities survivors themselves. they have a passion for this. they want to find other people who had no idea. one of my volunteers said that she met a person that was 84 who got stuck -- she had her hip surgery in got better but never got out again. she cannot get what she needed in the community. she cannot get the services she needed. so she told her, well, there these community waivers now, which are may be suffering cutbacks, but you have an enti
maryland is recognized. mr. hoyer: i thank my friend for yielding. and the time when it's my opportunity to speak is sometimes good and i think this is one of them. mr. hensarling just spoke. i have great respect for mr. hensarling. he works hard and focuses. he's philosophically well grounded and he follows his philosophy. i disagree with his philosophy. his fiscal premises. and his fiscal premises that were part of the last administration's approach to the finances of this country increased our deficit by 87%, from $5 trillion essentially to a little over $10 trillion. didn't quite double it, but 87% more debt under the bush administration. , that i -- think a call fiscal child abuse. why? because it was not done at a time of fiscal crisis, with large unemployment. than you employment was caused -- that unemployment was caused by the policies of the last administration. why do i say that? because under the clinton administration we created 21 million jobs in the private sector, just a little short of 21 million jobs, 22.8 million overall when you include public employment. and during t
% of the time. maryland, republican line. go ahead. caller: i think the perception that the supreme court is right- leaning is inconsistent, because it is really more of focus on our current government, which is so left-leaning. and i think part of what is amplifying everything is just the fact that you have so many attempts at changing the way that the country has been run, more of a socialist movement, that the stuff that is coming down from the courts does not necessarily along with the president. so there is the focus. and i have one other comment. i do not think the "the new york times" is a very valid newspaper organization, that you can even take their stories and believe that they are going to be balanced. host: off of twitter. "yes, the court is a very conservative and corporative, more business-minded and nothing for the people of the country." phoenix, arizona, independent one. good morning. caller: good morning. i would like to reiterate what the last caller said as far as "the new york times" putting this article out. isn't that a left-leaning publication as far as politics i
representing the entire state, they have to understand -- you have a conservative estern maryland, liberal montgomery county and baltimore city and so on -- i think all ofhis is being reinforced and is coming on so fast, but the change in the media. it has become so targeted and fragmented that we tend to and reinforce only those views. we only have -- we do not have the nightly news that covers different perspectives. i think that is a real danger. i do not know what the solution is. that is where we turn to the academic community for research. one area where i would like to disagree, cordially, is the issue of federalism. i am not particularly alarmed about the role of federalism. i think the are times in which a very strong national government needs to be there. i think without the national government stepping up on the issue of civil rights, for example, i think without the federal government stepping up on the issue of national environmental policy, even now, without the national government stepping in in a big way to deal with some of these institutional financial issues and
: let's move on to maryland, on the line for democrats. caller: good morning. i think the president can rebound even though he has a lot of people who are against him, especially the other parties. i think evealso corporations are holding back on jobs. there was an article in the "washington post" this week that said some are holding back on their cash reserves, making sure that they will have money, but at the same time keep advertising jobs. but they're not hiring people. if i were the president, if you go online to usa jobs, a lot of those are government jobs. i would make sure my administration would not have any type of jobs out there, no longer than 90 days. host: this morning in the new orleans paper -- jindal thrived in crisis. also, this morning in "the washington post" -- cap may erase sense of hopelessness in oil spill. joe writes -- so is it over? joining us on the phone to update us on the situation regarding the capping of the well and the cleanup in the gulf is admiral thad allen, retired u.s. coast guard, now the national incident commander of the deep water horizon oil
experiences in baltimore, maryland and she said some of the teachers and parents say that they are dumb and she said they are not. she said we need to be engaged in the process. this is something we have to prove to the world richie also talks about the waste and abuse in the d.c. public schools. dismissal of to get 41 teachers in washington, d.c., your reaction? -- dismissal of to order 41 teachers in washington, d.c., your reaction? caller: i oppose it because of one reason. i think it is too much pressure on the teachers about how the school system is going on when it is really about the politicians. we should be more focused on what programs are cut and i think it should be up to the parents for it if you cannot discipline kids at home, how do you expect the teachers to do anything? they should be more focused on pta meetings. i was once a teacher years ago to is very rare that you could do anything about the classroom if you cannot discipline. you can be the best teacher in the world but you cannot control the discipline and the teachers are not attending pta, that is a problem. ho
